Hello Everyone! Hope you’re doing great. Today’s card features the Spellbinders’ large die of the month for the month of November,2018.
Here’s my card for today.
The Focal Point:
I only used one out of the set of amazing dies that came in my November 2018 large die of the month subscription. This die cuts the window for the Christmas tree with the garland around it and Christmas ornaments. The sparkly green paper backing is just so pretty. And the red rhinestones for the ornaments add extra touch to the otherwise clean and simple Christmas card.
The card base is 110 lb. heavyweight card stock. The top panel is mounted on foam tapes for extra dimension.
The sentiment on this card is from old Simon Says Stamp stamp set I bought with one of their card kits. This is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed using gold glitter embossing powder.
The Card Base:
The card base is again heavyweight card stock cut to 5 and a half by 8 and a half and scored to make a standard A2 size card.
Today I am presenting the Christmas cards made using Simon Says Stamp Stamptember 2018 limited edition release stamp and die set called Ornate Ornaments. This stamp set is so beautifully made. The detail in the ornaments is stunning.
Here are the cards for today:
There are 5 different ornaments in the Ornate Ornaments stamp set. I stamped all of them in blue green and red card-stocks using Versamark Ink. Embossed with platinum on green, silver on blue and gold on red. Also matted the green blue and red panels with matching metallic cardstock that is slightly larger than the panel. Finally foam-mounted the panel on 4 and a quarter by 5 and a half side folding card bases.
Here’s another card I created with the Simon Says Stamp Ornate Ornaments Stamp and Die set:
I went with just gold and craft on this card and of course a lot of embossing. Stamped the ornament images with Versamark ink and embossed with gold on heat resistant acetate. I die cut the craft card panel with the matching dies aligning the images that was stamped on acetate. Then I layered ton of foam tapes at the back trying my best to seal around the ornaments so I could put some silver sequins inside to create a shaker card. I thought the craft panel was still a little plain so i smooshed the Versamark ink around the edges and embossed with gold embossing powder again. I loved how organic the edge looks. Stamped the sentiment in the middle saying Wishing you Joy and yes you guessed it embossed again.
I did not plan this card this way in the beginning. Instead I went with what looked good and improvised as I was going. Hence lots of embossing after the acetate sheet was already attached. That caused even the heat resistant acetate to warp a little. But lesson learnt.
I loved how it turned out anyway. Let me know what you guys think in the comment below.
